Recession. Does it feel like you’re hearing that word a lot lately? In part, the chatter is related to the 10-year anniversary of the 2008 kickoff of the Great Recession. Then on May 22, online real estate company Zillow released the results of a survey that found most experts they asked predict the next recession will hit America in 2020. The same day, Congress passed a law making it easier for America’s financial institutions to repeat risky mistakes that led to the last economic meltdown.

Tarbell is working on a story that goes beyond economists’ warnings and looks at the special interests behind Congress’ recent moves. We’re also reporting on actions you can take to be better prepared for the next recession, whenever it hits.

We want to know what’s worrying you. Please share how you feel.
